"Dir En Grey Rare NYC In-Store Appearance - Tuesday, November 10th

For Immediate Release: 
The Diva Review 

Dir En Grey 
Rare NYC In-Store Appearance - Tuesday, November 10th
Formed in 1997, the band Dir En Grey tore down musical borders by becoming the first Japanese rock group invited to join Korn on their US Family Values Tour. They have consistently sold out performances in Europe, including in such select cities as Paris and Berlin, as well as filling venues to capacity during back-to-back performances in Los Angeles and New York City.
Billboard Magazine commented that Dir En Grey "ignited a frenzied response with their first three U.S. shows." In 2006, the music video for their song 'Saku' was voted #1 Video of the Year on the MTV2 show, Headbanger's Ball, a groundbreaking first for a non-English speaking import act.
We are pleased to announce that in celebration of their scheduled 3-night performance at New York City's Blender Theater at Gramercy, and upcoming DVD release, Average Blasphemy, that Dir En Grey will be part of a special event hosted by The Lady MizDiva Vélez of the acclaimed pop culture showcase, TheDivaReview.com.
On the evening of Tuesday, November 10th at Kinokuniya Bookstore in New York City, Dir En Grey will take part in a live interview hosted by The Lady Miz Diva discussing the band's history and their All Visible Things Tour 09, as well as play clips from their newly-released DVD, Average Blasphemy.  The band will also sign autographs for 200 attendees.
This TRL-reminiscent event will be visible along New York City's famed Bryant Park, via the windows of Kinokuniya Bookstore, located opposite the park at 1073 Avenue of the Americas. Crowds of Dir En Grey fans will be able to view and cheer for their idols, making sure the event will be an unforgettable experience.
Your coverage is invited.
Date: November 10th, 2009, 7PM load-in for 7:45 photo call with the band. Panel will start at 8PM.
Location: Kinokuniya Bookstore, 1073 Avenue of the Americas, between 40th & 41st Sts. 2nd Floor.

Wow!  This is apparently by invite only and tickets need to be won through the Diva Review website.  I won't be able to go, but good luck to all of you who enter!  Especially those of you who purchased the 3-night pack - now it can be 4 nights of Dir en grey!  haha

Jw. Did you e-mail press@divareview or this page says to e-mail DEGsweepstakes@theDivaReview.com ... I don't know which to e-mail, figured I'd ask and see what someone else did.
5th-Nov-2009 12:45 pm (UTC)
E-mail DEGsweepstakes@theDivaReview.com. That's where it says to e-mail all entries when you click on the link on the website. ^_^ Good luck!

What the hell?
They're already doing a signing at the show on Wednesday and now they're doing another one?
They spoil NY enough already,come on srsly
4th-Nov-2009 09:01 pm (UTC)
Holy shit. *applies* :o
4th-Nov-2009 09:07 pm (UTC)
Ahhh omg I was just there yesterday.
4th-Nov-2009 09:19 pm (UTC)
I just checked the Kinokuniya website and it said it's going to be from 1-4 pm but it says here it starts 8pm..which one is it? D:
5th-Nov-2009 02:12 am (UTC)
I am hoping it's what this website says - 8pm... because if it's 1-4pm I really don't even think I should bother entering, I couldn't go. :/ 8pm makes more sense, to me at least - it's after the store generally closes so... :/ Idk. Good question.
5th-Nov-2009 11:59 am (UTC)
I entered anyway even though I most likely won't go if it really is 1-4 because of school..
4th-Nov-2009 09:49 pm (UTC)
I think this is absolute bull. NYC gets 3 days, a singing and now this and most likely merch.

Diru's management need wake up and realize NY isn't the only place they have fans.

Sorry to anyone from NY but that is how a lot of see it.
4th-Nov-2009 10:11 pm (UTC)
Dude frigging thank you
that is excatly what I said
4th-Nov-2009 10:25 pm (UTC)
we should start complaining on their twitter like the canadian fans did when there was no canadian date announced.
4th-Nov-2009 10:30 pm (UTC)
we should
Ohh yea you're one of the TX ppl so that definately gives you a reason to complain
4th-Nov-2009 10:42 pm (UTC)
It does especially about the merch.

I wanted a fucking tour shirt. They better put some up on that merch site they had for TRTA tour shirts and stuff. >.
4th-Nov-2009 10:55 pm (UTC)
Yea the whole merch thing is bullshit.
Thats not the same as buying it at the concert though.
ooo and if they don't there's gonna be some serious hell to pay.
4th-Nov-2009 11:05 pm (UTC)
It's not the same true but I don't have money to go to any of these other shows. So it'll do to get it online. Ugh this is not cool. x(
4th-Nov-2009 11:16 pm (UTC)
Yea I guess but they better make up for it and there better not be anymore fuck ups.

4th-Nov-2009 11:26 pm (UTC)
Lol i was hoping there would be more like the merch got lost on their way NYC or something. <<

But I really hope SA fans get merch. First time to get love from Diru so.. it's all cool.
4th-Nov-2009 11:35 pm (UTC)
yea I hope they do too.
Psssh with all the stuff NY gets their merch better get lost on the way back from SA. Like I'd be pretty mad if they got all that stuff and they were the first NA date to get merch.
4th-Nov-2009 11:45 pm (UTC)
LOl right. XD Are you going to any of the shows?
4th-Nov-2009 11:49 pm (UTC)
Yea SF so hopefully they'll have their shit together by then.
4th-Nov-2009 11:55 pm (UTC)
the last show of the tour. Hopefully.

I'm surprised no one has butted in and told to shut up about NYC. xD
5th-Nov-2009 12:06 am (UTC)
haha yea i been waiting for someone to say something
5th-Nov-2009 12:12 am (UTC)
it's because they know we're right. XD
5th-Nov-2009 12:42 am (UTC)
yes they do
4th-Nov-2009 09:59 pm (UTC)
huh... reminds me of that time rentrer en soi was supposed to be at kinokuniya for clash against commercialism.

i applied.
4th-Nov-2009 11:23 pm (UTC)
Oh Clash Against Commercialism..I still have loads of flyers for that XDD.
4th-Nov-2009 11:31 pm (UTC)
i was so pissed when that was canceled... and then ReS disbanded! i was was like, fuuuuucck D:
4th-Nov-2009 11:42 pm (UTC)
I was mad, too X_X. So even if they ever decided to finally do it it'd never be the same because of ReS...fail @_@.
5th-Nov-2009 02:13 am (UTC)
Lol Clash Against Commercialism, good times that was. XD ;A;
5th-Nov-2009 02:16 am (UTC)
4th-Nov-2009 10:00 pm (UTC)
I'm not arriving in NY 'till Wednesday morning....=_=

I don't really know what to think about this tour anymore...>_>
5th-Nov-2009 12:14 am (UTC)
so who is this mizdiva person because atm I'm picturing a latina tranny putting the moves on toshiya

not to say i wouldn't want to see that, but

it looks like this is mostly a press event. the guy at kinokuniya was super helpful getting me the info though, but it sounds like it's not all ironed out yet. way to last minute it up. don't they know there's not gonna be a crowd because everyone's gonna be over at the venue lined up?
5th-Nov-2009 12:50 am (UTC)
i'm picturing a latina tranny too
5th-Nov-2009 08:44 am (UTC)
5th-Nov-2009 02:20 am (UTC)
That site seems so obscure, and...not related at all, but okay? XD Only heard about it because there's a Facebook event and a friend RSVP-ed... Can't hurt to try and get tickets, I guess. o_O
5th-Nov-2009 12:48 pm (UTC)
I never saw anything on Facebook about this. Do you have the link?
